Chris Rock’s brother has once again hit out at Will Smith for the now infamous Oscars slap.

Smith hit Rock after the presenter made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith during the awards ceremony last Sunday.

Chris’ younger brother, Tony Rock, who has already condemned Smith’s actions and subsequent apology, again hit out at the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor during a stand-up comedy gig at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Speaking to his audience at the beginning of the show, Tony said: "If you think you gonna walk up on this stage, this ain't the motherf***ing Oscars.

"And if you walk your ass you here, you ain't nominated for s**t but these mothef***ing hands! Oh we are going to pop the rest of the year. Every time you see me do a show, pop!"

He continued later in the night: "I didn't want to start the show like that!

"You gonna hit my motherf***ing brother because your b***h gave you a side-eye?" he asked, referencing this incident again.”

Smith dramatically resigned from the Academy on Sunday, describing his actions as “shocking, painful and inexcusable.”

In a statement, he said: “I have directly responded to the Academy’s disciplinary hearing notice, and I will fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct,” he said in a statement.

“My actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable.

“The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy.

“I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken.”
